Default Website problems

I've got all sorts of problems accessing this forum using firefox, I keep getting random web pages and advert popping up no matter where I click on the forums page, one called 'climshort.com' locks the machine.

Now I do not know why it's not doing in Explorer (I'm using it now) nor why it's not doing it on any other websites I visit with Firefox unless they have a tighter security system.

Note I have an adblocker installed and if enabled it does block the ads but also stops me from using the forum in a meaningful way. e.g can't log in.

Anybody any ideas what's going on?

Shrapnel have fixed the attack - that was on Friday, so you should not be seeing that any more. That was discussed (a bit off topic but we all do that) in the MBTs thread at http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showt...=45260&page=20 at post 960 or so onwards.

I use Firefox as well, and use ghostery and privacy badger as my ad blocker tools - the web would be unnavigble without these, unfortunately!, and have no problems with the website, including logging in.

(I tried Chrome as an alternative while the problem was active, it still opened the pop-up tabs but unlike Firefox, about half simply opened a blank page - so some of those redirects seem already to have been auto-marked as spamvertising by Google in thier browser).

It's back. Clearing the cache does nothing.

Logging or clicking on messages takes be to some screen for downloading something. I also get spurious other pages. It's a real pain.

Any suggestions as it also causes the site to freeze.

Note I've tried other forums here and it looks as if it's only this one with the problem.

No issues here (Firefox, Kaspersky Internet Security, File Badger, Adblock Plus)

Perhaps you need to spend a little time upgrading your anti virus / anti ads / anti popups software?
